See Malinois currently waiting for Foster Homes!



These Rescues are currently available in the South Central portion of the country. If you are interested in adopting one of the Malinois profiled in these pages contact the foster home listed in the profile.


Many police officers/trainers/SAR groups approach Malinois rescue looking for young dogs to train. Most of our rescued dogs are not suitable for these types of jobs. Some of our rescued Malinois are actually dogs that have been rejected by police departments due to their inability to do the job. While we are not opposed to adopting dogs out as working dogs, we adopt only to individuals, never to organizations or police departments. Most of our rescued Malinois have had difficult beginnings in life. The majority will make fantastic family pets, but most of them do not have the temperament needed to work day after day with a police officer or in search and rescue. All dogs adopted through Malinois rescue will be spayed or neutered prior to placement.

Diesel 6 mo old neutered male - MO

Fee: $350
Malinois Foster Diesel - 14KB

Malinois Foster Diesel - 40KB

Diesel is quite handsome and a very nice 6 month old Malinois puppy.

He is a gregarious, driven boy that only lacks some further exposure to the great big outside world. He is a natural for dock diving and has already taken to the dock and is jumping into the pool with great form and completely focused on the toy, he absolutely loves his ball and a good game of fetch - beware not to over exhaust him! He would be best suited for a performance home and is extremely food and toy driven which has been beneficial as he works on furthering his skills regarding "focus".

Diesel is excellent in the crate and mostly potty trained in the house (he is still young and has about a 4 hour limit). He has some basic commands in progress (sit, down, shake) while working further on stay and wait. He enjoys meeting new people and is "puppy friendly".

Diesel does good with dogs of all sizes, cats and is learning about livestock on a daily basis. He can be a bit overbearing during play with dogs, however, takes correction well and is a very typical Mal boy! His prey drive is quite intense so he may do best in a home with no cats - in his current home he can be called off the resident cats but his interest in them seems to be increasing daily.

He will be a wonderful dog for someone and would be a foster failure if we did not have so many animals!

Dottie is a very sweet girl who just wants to be around people and get her back rubbed (that is very important to her).

Dottie was adopted through animal care services as a stray. She was originally estimated to be 5 years old because she does not come across as being an older dog; she enjoys running around and playing. She is a very sweet girl who just wants to be around people and get her back rubbed (that is very important to her). Compared to other mals, she has a moderate drive and a great "off switch" if you want to sit down to watch TV or take a nap. When she sees you are active, she has the "on" switch and wants to follow you around and spend time with you by your side. Dottie is also potty trained. She is truly a great companion to have.

Her foster home consists of 3 other young and energetic female dogs (2 malinois and 1 blue heeler). She has gotten along well with the others. She is submissive to the alpha and never challenges her, and she doesn't try to supersede the other 2. The only time I saw "teeth" come out was when one of the mals tried eating from Dottie's bowl while she was still eating. She is not food aggressive and respects the others' spaces when eating; she prefers to not have other dogs get in her space while she is eating. She does not like horses in close proximity (fence between her and the horse). She has not been observed around children, cattle, cats, or small dogs at this time.

Traveling is a wonderful quality for Dottie. She rides perfectly in cars and even jumps in/out when cued. At the vet office, she doesn't bother the other animals in the waiting room. She is also very compliant with the vet staff with any procedures (shots, skin scrapes, eye exams). Dottie also enjoys getting baths so long as she can drink from the hose from time to time.

Dottie's vision is going to be her biggest challenge in the future. She has been observed to bump into objects that are in her peripheral vision. Extreme bright environments and dark environments are a little challenging for her at this time. She got a thorough eye exam, which indicated that she has Progressive Retinal Atrophy (PRA) and very early stages of cataracts. The vet did say that she has a very good chance of adapting well to her environment once she loses her vision because she has very good senses of smell and hearing in addition to being intelligent.

While vision will be a concern in later years, Dottie is a wonderful dog and deserves to have a loving home where she will be treated as a part of the family. It is recommended that Dottie go to a home where she can primarily be an indoor dog due to vision difficulties in bright sunlight and very dark environments.

She's a super smart girl that I think would do well in some sort of non-strenuous sport such as nose work or tracking.

Jackie (aka Jacks) is a 2 yo spayed female Malinois. She is house trained as well as crate trained. However, saying all that, she still has to be lured into the crate and will have an accident in the house if you don't pick up on her cues that she needs to go out. She likes other dogs but can be obnoxious with them. She handles being told off by other dogs very well.

Jackie was a cruelty case seizure that came in to rescue at 46 pounds. She has gained weight and eats well. She should be fed away from other dogs. She has not shown any food aggression or resource guarding of any kind. But she will try and steal the other dogs' food once she has eaten all of hers. She will counter surf if given a chance. Although that has only happened once and she is getting better about keeping her feet off the counter-tops and staying out of the trash. She will get a little pushy when people are eating but a couple of easy redirections and she will sit and watch you eat.

She sleeps on the floor in the bedroom with the rest of my crew. She's not much for laying on the bed but that might change. She does happily nap on the couch though. She's a big fan of balls as toys and has had a few introductions to frisbees. She loves to chase them but hasn't learned to bring them back yet. She generally likes to be doing something even if it's just chewing on one of the Kong balls. She's a super smart girl that I think would do well in some sort of non-strenuous sport such as nose work or tracking. She has an odd gait on her right hind leg and occasionally she will bunny hop on it. We had her hips and knees x-rayed and everything looks great with them. But for those reasons I don't believe a strenuous sport home would be the best fit for her.

Jackie has met a few visitors that have come to the house. She is generally very shy meeting them. However, she has just enough confidence to run around them barking and then trying to sneak in to mouth their hands and arm. If she meets people out of the house, she is very respectful and good. She met a lady in a wheelchair at the vet clinic and was great. She showed no issues with the wheelchair and allowed the lady to pet her. As of right now, Jackie has not been around children or cats or small dogs. We are continuing to work on her socialization and her general manners. But with a little work this girl will make someone a wonderful pet.

Jill 6 yr old spayed female - TX

Malinois Foster Jill - 17KB

I am about 6 years young. My foster Mom says for me not to get to comfy here cause I Will get my very own AWESOME family

and furever home real soon!! (I really think she is a little prejudice though). But I get very excited dreaming of my very own "Perfect Family".

My foster Mom says I am a typical Mal who loves attention," I do love to snuggle & get lots of pets and rubs!!!

I love to play fetch as long as you want me to, maybe even a little longer than you want me to. I also LOVE LOVE LOVE the water , so if you happen to have a concrete pond, plastic one or even a dirt pond we could have loads of fun together.

Mom says that because I had a broke pelvic in the past, swimming will be great therapeutic exercise for me as I might have a little touch of arthritis (whatever that is) as I age gracefully with my very own "Perfect Family". (Can't wait to meet them).

I love a good road trip, and will even wait for a helping hand to get into the van, but I will scramble in if you ask me to but Mom says I shouldn't do that and she doesn't mind helping me in and my "Perfect Family " won't mind either.

Although I love and play with my foster sisters now I was really scared and insecure and not very nice to them at first. Mom called it "insecure reactivity" (never heard that before) but she told me not to worry about it cause she will help me work through it.(She tells me that a lot) Mom says I never learned something she calls manners and I will need them for my "Perfect Family". (Sure like the sound of that).

Sorry I didn't learn them before. No one ever took the time to teach me about manners or I would have learned them BEFORE now and would maybe ready have my own "Perfect Family " if I had known about them. But I am getting to spend lots of time with Mom and when I mess up or don't understand she will tell me it's ok and we try it again until I understand, and contrary to the old saying "You can't teach an old dog new tricks". Not that I am old, ya know!

I try to learn something new everyday and will continue to learn with my "Perfect Family ". Mom says that because of my old injury and prey drive that there shouldn't be any small children or cats.

But I love children!! Mom said we would find a family with older children to play with. YIPPEE!!! OOPS sorry, supposed to stay calm. I am a "work in progress"

LOVE, Jill
